MONTGOMERY, Ala. (AP) - A judge has scheduled a hearing for next month on the future of the shuttered VictoryLand casino in Macon County.

Circuit Judge William Shashy issued an order Monday saying he’ll consider the owner’s bid to reopen VictoryLand on Aug. 4.

Shashy ruled last month that the state wrongly seized more than 1,000 gambling machines and cash from VictoryLand during a raid in 2013. Owner Milton McGregor is in in court trying to get everything returned.

But the state attorney general’s office says Shashy’s decision was wrong, and it’s trying to block the release of the machines and cash.

An attorney for VictoryLand says getting the gambling devices returned could be a key step toward reopening the casino provided they still work.
